Description Jamie Hari 2005-12-17 07:34:36 UTC
As it appears (shown by the link I have provided), additional pages not including the 
{{disambig}} tag are incorrectly included on the Special:Disambiguations page. 
These 'incorrect' pages appear to be pages that link to a page with the {{disambig}} 
tag, something like a 'double redirect'. I should imagine this was not the original 
intent and should be rectified. 


Comment 1 Jamie Hari 2005-12-17 07:39:34 UTC
Sorry, let me clarify / correct my original post.

It appears as though pages that link to a page that links to a {{disambig}} page 
are being included... (Such as a 'double redirect')

Also, as an aside, would there not be some value in having a special page that 
lists only pages actually containing the {{disambig}} tag, as opposed to a list of 
pages that link to them?
Comment 2 Ævar Arnfjörð Bjarmason 2005-12-17 07:41:57 UTC
We don't keep track of template links, only links in general. Finding what
templates link to a specific page would be a superexpensive operation in the
current schema although we may keep track of them seperatly in the future, this
shouldn't be that big of an issue anyway.
Comment 3 Jamie Hari 2005-12-17 07:44:53 UTC
Right... So what of the bug? 
(From what you see, do you agree there is a bug?)
Comment 4 Antoine "hashar" Musso (WMF) 2006-01-08 18:38:22 UTC
We have a templatelink table now in HEAD, so we are able to track
pages that got a given template (such as template:disambig).

I updated SpecialDisambiguation to reflect it.

Fixed in HEAD. Should be in 1.6.

Comment 5 Jamie Hari 2006-02-04 01:47:07 UTC
If it is fixed, should someone close this bug?
